Academic Advisor Focusing On The International Student Experience

Academic Advising/College Support

The College of Science and Engineering's Academic Advising Office has created a new advising role (Senior Academic Advisor with a Focus on the International Student Experience) with the use of the international fee. In addition to a caseload of undergraduate students in the College, this advisor's project work will focus on ways to support and enhance our international students' experience and success in the College. Key areas of concentration in the first year will include: building relationships with campus partners; incorporating best practices and research to develop programming which focus on connecting international students to college staff, faculty and resources in their first semester; developing and initiating advising efforts and programs to engage in proactive outreach and communications prior to their orientation experience; identifying challenges within the advising model specific to the international student population and exploring solutions and resources to influence individual advising interactions across the advising team.
